blatant hypocrisy after a judge ruled against president obama's power to make recess appointments while the senate is out of session. "the wall street journal"'s page fully supported president bush's right to make such appointments but says obama is doing the constitutional equivalent of sticking a thumb in the eye and hitting below the belt. the new york tiles liberal editorial page ripped bush saying it was disturbing w. had exhibited a grandiose vision of executive power but hailed obama of his approval saying republican [ inaudible ] was far worse. >>> linda carson of wwsb in sarasota reporting from a florida county fair on kids who raise goats and then things went slightly off script. . >> the judging is complete so come on out and meet the winners. the goats will be here through saturday and they're very friendly. from the county fair, linda carson, abc 7. would you not eat my pants. ah! >> talk about the subject budding in. good for linda carson for handling the knockdown with good humor. that's it for this edition of "reliable sources" if you missed a program get our podcast on

obama gave speeches against it. vice-president biden voted against it. dick lugar voted against it. there were some other republicans. as to the iranian red line, persian gulf, some of the iranian questions you asked, i support the president's strong position of containment, as i said, and i will speak more specifically to a couple of the examples used from my book. but his position i think is right, and when you ask the question about red line, red line, i think the president has gone as far as he can go publicly on that, and he said clearly that in his words, he has israel's back. he said his policy is not to allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. what constitutes when the action would be taken? i think that is always something that should not be discussed publicly or debated publicly or out in the public domain. your quotations from my book, which you acknowledge as well, and i always say military options should be on the table, and i had said that consistently, as well as engaging with iran. i have always thought it is far smarter to approach these very serious threats, in

in the crisis that any action has been taken against such a high-ranking church official. >>> the obama administration announced a new attempted compromise with religious groups friday in the ongoingispute over the controversial "contraception mandate" in the healthcare law. under the new proposed rules, faith-based nonprofit employers with religious objections would not have to cover free contraceptive services for their employees. instead, the insurer or another third-party would provide the coverage at no cost to either the employee or the nonprofit. the new rules would widen the number of groups exempted from the mandate, although religious for-profits would still have to comply. some religiousroups said they were satisfied with the new rules, but others remained concerned. the u.s. catholic bishops said they are studying the proposal. >>> also this week, president obama made a strong push for comprehensive immigration reform this week, as did some members of the senate, who presented their own bipartisan plan. faith groups across the religious spectrum praised both efforts, saying

of the debate over the fight against terrorism. what about the undermining of civil liberties here at home? the rights of suspects? the secret surveillance of american citizens? the swollen executive powers first claimed by george w. bush and now by barack obama? soon after he succeeded bush, president obama announced he would not permit torture and would close down the detention camp at guantanamo bay. he also said this -- >> our actions in defense of liberty will be just as our cause. and that we the people will uphold our fundamental values as vigilantly as we protect our security. once again america's moral example must be the bedrock and the beacon of our global leadership. >> four years later, guantanamo not only remains open, but a few days ago, the state department announced it was eliminating the office assigned to close the prison and move its detainees. meanwhile, president obama has stepped up the use of unmanned drones against suspected terrorists abroad. those drone attacks have killed a growing number of civilians and have prompted the united nations to launch an investigati

believe obama won because everyone they know voted against him. the point is, we have different perspectives on this. the reason i will oppose the legislation, chief johnston, is because i respect what you do as a law-enforcement officer. has your budget been cut? >> yes. >> will it be cut in the future? >> i am optimistic that it is not. >> because of the fiscal state of affairs we have, there will be less police officers, not more, over the next decade. response time will be more, not less. so, mr. kelly, i really do want to get guns out of the hands of the wrong people. i honest to god believe that if we arbitrarily say nobody in this country can own a 10-round magazine in the future, there could be a situation where a mother runs out of bullets because of something we do here. i cannot prevent every bad outcome, but i do know and believe in the bottom of my heart that i am not an unreasonable person by saying that in some circumstances the 15-round makes sense and in other situations the ar-15 makes sense. this is why we have these hearings. i really do appreciate the fact t

really gave an issue to barack obama who as a state senator was out there in chicago in probably a liberal district and he voted against the war without worrying about it. she hedged her bets and voted for the war, and i think that was her biggest impediment to winning. i don't think she has that kind of impediment this time around. >> no, and she learned how to communicate with working class folks. if you remember, chris, four or five years ago, hillary clinton's biggest problem was working class women, blue collar women. yet by the end of that campaign, she was racking up huge majorities in west virginia and kentucky and pennsylvania and places like that, and she attracted those working class women. she was like a rock star in the parades we went to in scranton and pittsburgh and places like that. so she learned to communicate as a populist, as a real populist. that will hold her in good stead. i think she learned to save some money for contingencies. remember, if they had any money after super tuesday, i think they would have been the nominee, but they spent all their money, a

obama's but i disagree and i'm voting against him. the way it worked before, the president gets to pick his nominees and it's not an acceptable reason to vote against him because he agrees with the guy who nominated him. >> how much of the hearing was politics? how much policy? how much personal? break it down. >> it's a side show. this is senate. it's the opposite party. when they are nominating, democrats do it, republicans do it. it's also personal. with chuck hagel, he served with them. he was a di- visive figure. you are not going to see a lot of republicans doing it. it's part policy, it's part political -- politics and gets personal. >> you know, the personal part of it, it seemed to take it to a completely different level this week. i mean am i completely wrong? >> it did. i don't think hagel helped himself by his performance calling the legitimate state of iran, having to go back and pausing and assaulting, you know, kind of performance. certainly very different than what you saw the performance that senator kerry gave and the reception by his colleagues. >> anna, your article,

amendment, which failed and which killed immigration reform, was voted down by democrats, barack obama among them, barbara boxer of california, a state that desperately needs a guest worker program, why, because organized labor was against it. i also am very optimistic about this bill. it is carefully crafted to acknowledge that we have to deal with the people who are here today, but also that we have to actually reform our legal immigration system so that we have a guest worker program that works, so that we have border security, so that we don't have 16 different visa programs and many of the people who are here illegally have overstayed their visas, in other words, we have a host of problems that have to be solved. this gang of eight bill i think is a first step towards solving them. what i hope, what i hope is that while it's easy to always blame the republicans, i hope that the democrats and organized labor will not push their opposition to a guest worker program so far that they kill the whole deal because they did it last time. >> let me say something. it is amazing that the border is

studying this movement all this time against my will, because this power drag me into it i'm sure glad they did, is that from frederick douglass to martin luther king to barack obama today, that magnificent progress that's going forward, we change, we are more accepting, we have a lot more blessing, we have a black man in the white house, but the acceptance and public culture of barack obama by the millions of white people who voted for him is still largely on their terms, not his. it's the people on the other side who are forced to accommodate across the lines, force always black folks have had -- it's not a choice and luxury to do with race. including barack obama who can't talk about race right now because if he does, the people who voted for him will find some reason to say that he is emphasizing too much. so race is still there. a place, it can pay enormous dividends in our future. to me, it is vital we get our sense of history more in line with what happened so we can restore our confidence and capacities of government to move forward. and i'm not saying it's going to be easy, bu

. they're not going to back anything that has the name barack obama on it. so when it comes to, for instance, immigration rights, he can talk about extending it to the gay community because he's pressing two bigot buttons, hatred against immigrants and their fury against gays. >> isn't that a little unfair? look at what senator rubio has done, he's urged conservatives to try to come to the table. wants to make a deal. >> pardon the interruption, but i think what i would probably suggest is that when it came time to introduce what i would think would be a common sense part of immigration, to include people from the lgbt community, rubio talked about how obama was going too far. it is absurd that we even have this kind of an issue. >> it's not just rubio who said it. at this point, senator john mccain said the same thing. there have been a number of republicans who have said that if that is part of any sort of comprehensive immigration bill, that bill probably won't see the light of day. stand by. quick break. we got to pay a lot of bills here. when we come back, new indications
